COMPASSION par Jeffrey Littrell

la vie de certaines personnes
sont un peu comme
un jardin bien entretenu,
avec beaucoup de nourrir
et en croissance,
les bras levés comme des branches
attiré par le soleil

encore certains qui prennent un chemin téméraire,
devenir comme fleurs fanées,
avec seulement le venin à l’intérieur
les soutenir.
désespérément, ils courent contre la montre
répand comme la fétuque élevée
dans les prairies humides

Donc, je vais prendre la main si vous êtes tombé
quand d’autres se détournent, je serai là
car j’ai parcouru le chemin des opprimés
et ressenti la douleur que vous avez été maudit à porter



About digthroughlife

I am a fifty-three year old poet who also writes fiction. I worked twenty-three years for the USPS, though never enthusiastically. I am a member of French Writers Worldwide and have had several poems published in French and Spanish. I hold strong opinions on music, film, and human rights. Some of my influences are Charles Bukowski, Arthur Rimbaud, Dylan Thomas, Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, Sylvia Plath, W.B Yeats, Bob Marley, William Blake, and Hunter S. Thompson. I'm an avid fan of the New York Yankees, Oakland Raiders, and Indiana Pacers. I like traveling by car. I enjoy seeing rock and alt-country bands in small venues. I hold a black belt in Taekwondo, but no longer spar due to injuries incurred in a motorcycle accident in 2005. I play acoustic guitar. I love Crown Royal whiskey and California Kush. Women are both the bane of my existence and all that sustains me. I believe strongly in the power of love and heartbreak. View all posts by digthroughlife
